Art D'Vine in Historic Downtown Bristol

June 16, 2014

On Friday, June 20, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., the downtown Bristol galleries are again joining forces to bring Art D’Vine to the local community, with the gallery hop serving as the kick-off event to this year’s State of the Arts Weekend, June 20–22. This art walk offers patrons the chance to gain after-hours access to merchants, sample domestic and international wines, and enjoy a range of works from artists across the region. The Art D’Vine galleries will be highlighting various special events, releases or artists, including:
** Kil’n Time will be hosting special musical guests and offering 20% off select ceramic items.
** The Hayes Furniture Building (801 State Street) will host the One Night Stand gallery, a pop-up exhibition of paintings by Perry Johnson, former Virginia Intermont art professor. The artwork, spanning ten years, shows an astute eye a sharp wit.
** Be among the first to view the two new Benjamin Walls images recently chosen for exhibit at The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
** Several artists will be unveiling new works at the entrance to 606 State Street Gallery at 7pm.
** One of a Kind Gallery will be introducing the work of Raymond M. Byram, who creates silk-screen color prints called serigraphs. The gallery will also be offering 10% off art supplies.
** Resident artist Michelle McKinney will be painting at blowfish emporium, and Strange Awakenings will be playing some fun music!
** Pretty Girl Station will be featuring works by multi-media artist Peggy Barnett.
** The Hatching Perspective Gallery at the Bristol Virginia School Board office on Lee Street will be showcasing artwork by Natalie Monyak, a recent Virginia High School graduate.
This event is free to the public, though there is a suggested one-time donation of $5 with the proceeds supporting the work of the Arts & Entertainment District of Historic Downtown Bristol, TN/VA.
